Adam Idah's signing might not have gotten a great reception from the supporters but the Norwich City loanee is starting to prove himself as a decent addition to Brendan Rodgers' side. The Hoops were in trouble at Fir Park when the Republic of Ireland striker was brought on at half-time in place of Kyogo Furuhashi. They were trailing Motherwell by a goal.

As we all know, Celtic have struggled in front of goal this season. So, they had a mountain to climb in the second half.

Fortunately for the Hoops, Idah proved to be the difference maker. He scored a brace to help them to victory, the second of which came in the 94th minute. Luis Palma managed to add a third two minutes later.

It was not the greatest performance from Celtic, once again, but at least they got the job done. If they can just squeeze out results for the remainder of the season, they will have a chance in the title race. And Idah seems to be enjoying the pressure that comes with life at Parkhead.

It looks like the move to Celtic Park has been a bit of an eye-opener for the striker. As reported by The Herald, Idah said:

"I’m loving it, everyone’s been great, training’s been good and I’m getting games so I’m loving life in Glasgow.

“You wouldn’t enjoy football if you didn’t enjoy pressure. You have to be up for it and know how to deal with [the pressure]. I know there’s a lot of it here but it’s what you play the game for.

“There’s obviously a big difference between Norwich and here. In my first game played Aberdeen and when we drew I thought ‘OK decent result’, and it definitely wasn’t! The demand is what it should be because it’s such a big club. The more I’m around the place and the city it’s all football here, which is really good."

Idah now has four goals in four league appearances for Celtic. That is a decent return, even if two of those might have come from the spot.

The task Rodgers has now is getting the best out of both Idah and Kyogo at the same time. The Japanese forward had scored a couple of goals in recent weeks as well but was brought off at half-time at Fir Park.

As for Idah, if he can continue to deliver goals for the rest of the season, Celtic could try to sign him permanently in the summer. It is believed Norwich City would listen to transfer offers around £3 million.
